Kevin Hogarth, director of international resourcing at Capital OnePublications I usually read Sunday papers especially The Sunday Timesand the Observer business sections. I find these give me a summary of the keybusiness issues of the past week and also preview the issues likely to arise inthe week ahead. There are also a number of interesting case studies ofbusinesses or business leaders. I find it difficult to find the time to read adaily paper so tend to pick up business news from the radio – Wake Up to Moneyon 5Live and Today Business Report on Radio 4. Books The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People (Covey) is wellwritten, easy to read and full of sensible ideas. The Paradox of Success (JohnR O’Neill) was very thought-provoking and especially useful for anyone involvedin working with individual executives or executive teams. It is also good froma personal development, renewal and work-life balance perspective. I have readlots of Handy’s books and I think The Empty Raincoat is the best. HumanResource Champions (Ulrich) – is pretty much the key HR guru so I get no prizesfor originality but is always worth reading or re-reading. Now Discover YourStrengths by Marcus Buckingham is a refreshing look at how we can improve ourperformance and that of the people who work for us by concentrating on what wedo well.
